Guardian journalist and TV critic Sarah Hughes has died, aged 48, after a long battle with cancer. Hughes had started off in sports journalism, as a writer for the New York Daily, before going on to work for the Guardian, the Telegraph and the Metro. She was a frontline reporter on war crimes in the DR Congo, before turning her hand to TV reviews and critics on shows such as Game of Thrones and Line of Duty. These became so popular they were even cited by the showrunners. Despite her public cancer battle, Hughes was a unique pick for former champions The Love Boat.
